Aecom has commited to reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 20% across its global operations by 2020. 

Aecom said it will focus on its largest sources of emissions: fleet vehicle fuel, purchased electricity, and heating and cooling for offices.

The established target follows the company's commitment along with other industry leaders at a White House roundtable in 2015 to collectively reduce GHG emissions by five million tonnes between 2008 and 2020.

Aecom said the transition to less-carbon intensive operations is consistent with its commitment to transforming communities, improving lives, and building a better world.

Michael Burke, Aecom chairman and CEO, said: "Our company is built around the power of connected expertise and collaboration to reimagine and create new potential for built and natural environments.

"Together, we strive to make a lasting and positive impact on society and the environment that will make a difference for future generations.”
